Hi! I'm trying to create a non-nested table/grid from nested data where the nested list has a different header. Coming from JSP/JSTL where it's easy to achieve using a nested "core:forEach" tag, I tried the same in ZK. I had to learn that "forEach" is called a "shadow element" in ZK which is only avaliable in EE. Using the eval repo, I could test that it does what I want. But... such a basic feature should be free in my opinion. Is there a workaround to achieve the result of following code in CE? Regards

      <forEach items="@load(vm.result)">
            <auxheader label="Verband"/>
            <auxheader label="Verein"/>
            <auxheader label="Spieler"/>
          <label value="@init(each.federation)"/>
          <label value="@init(each.club)"/>
          <label value="@init(each.name)"/>
        <forEach items="@load(each.matches)">
              <auxheader label="Datum"/>
              <auxheader label="Verein"/>
              <auxheader label="Gegner"/>
              <auxheader label="Ergebnis"/>
            <label value="@init(each.date)"/>
            <label value="@init(each.opponent.club)"/>
            <label value="@init(each.opponent.name)"/>
            <label value="@init(each.setsResult)"/>

Thanks a lot, hawk! The flat-list-solution works. I would upvote your answer, but don't have enough points. :)

Another MVVM solution is @template

Collection Property Binding with Dynamic Template

You can create 2 different templates and render each in a template according to a flag each.header

<grid model="@bind(vm.itemList) @template(each.type eq 'A' ? 'templateA' : 'templateB')">

So, first, you need to turn your nested list into a flat list in proper order:

group header 1
item 1-1
item 1-2
group header 2
item 2-1
item 2-2

Then, render this flat list with @template.

ZK previously supports forEach attributes like JSTL. But it can't deal with a nested case.

For a nested case which is more complicated, you can implement a Grid render.
